hauntingly happy

As a child, a few weeks before Halloween, my mother would start reading a Halloween book to my brother and me. It was the same book every year so you’d think I’d remember the name of it, but I don’t. What I do remember is how excited I was when she pulled that book out. I wonder if she still has it? My joy for Halloween has remained steady into adulthood and it is one of my favorite holidays to sew for. In this issue of Quick Quilts, we have 5 Halloween-inspired, quick projects to get you in the mood for the upcoming, spooktacular season. From a set of mug rugs to quilts you can wrap up in, there are projects of all sizes. If Halloween isn’t your thing, don’t despair!…

tricks & treats

Quilt Designed & Sewn by Stephanie Sheridan Machine Quilted by Linda Leathersich Finished Quilt Size 54" x 73" Plan The Halloween fabrics make this basic row quilt a super-fun project to sew, and a great seasonal project that’s quick and delightful.

Use an accurate ¼" seam allowance throughout to ensure all elements of the quilt fit together well. NOTE: Fabrics in the quilt shown are Faboolous Fun designed by Kanvas Studio for Kanvas Fabrics.

autumn on the prairie

Table Runner Designed & Made by Abigail Dolinger Finished Quilt Size 18" x 48" Number of Blocks & Finished Size 5 Blocks 6" x 6" Plan Falling leaf blocks are bordered by a pretty prairie point finishing treatment that will add a dash of fall color to your seasonal décor. The simple sewing techniques come together to create a big impact. Abigail used a bundle of precut 10"-squares to make her runner; notice how she used a light and dark of the same color in each block. Do the same or use favorite fall-themed scraps. Whatever you choose will work wonderfully with the design. Use an accurate ¼" seam allowance throughout to ensure all elements of the table runner fit together well.
